What can clinicians do?
A self-report of measles vaccination or self-reported history of measles infection is not adequate evidence of protection. Clinicians should vaccinate anyone 6 months or older traveling overseas who does not have written documentation of vaccination or other evidence of measles immunity. Infants aged 6-11 months should be vaccinated with one dose before travel.* For travelers 12 months or older, two doses at least 28 days apart are recommended.
*Infants who get one dose of MMR vaccine before their first birthday should be revaccinated according to the routine ACIP schedule (one dose at 12 through 15 months of age and another dose separated by at least 28 days).
